This second week of October is U.S. National HealthIT Week – a time for celebrating the essential role that health information technology plays in transforming health and healthcare in care in the United States. This week – and all year long – the HealthCare Executive Group (HCEG) actively focuses on the mission of National HealthIT Week:
To promote the exchange of information, ideas, opinions, and experiences among healthcare executives and senior leader to apply and transform innovation and technology in healthcare.
Our mission – established 30 years ago – clearly aligns with that of the U.S. National HealthIT Week. We’re pleased to partner with HIMSS in celebrating U.S. National HealthIT Week during our 30th Anniversary!
How HCEG Helps Transform Healthcare in the United States
The primary ways in which HCEG advances its mission is via our Annual Forum, our HCEG Top 10 list, the Industry Pulse research survey based on the HCEG Top 10, periodic Executive Leadership Roundtables (ELR), webinars and content – original and curated – from our members, sponsor partners, and industry thought leaders.
The HCEG Annual Forum
Last month, our 2018 Annual Forum celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the HealthCare Executive Group. Nationally-recognized healthcare thought leaders such as Andy Slavitt, former Acting CMS Administrator and current leader of Town Hall Ventures, Dr. David J Shulkin, MD, former Secretary of the Veterans Administration and current Chief Innovation Officer of Sanford Health, and Dan Buettner, National Geographic Fellow, NY Times bestselling author and principal at the Blue Zones Project were several of the healthcare leaders sharing their insight and ideas.

HCEG makes a unique contribution to the healthcare industry via the HCEG Top 10 list. Now in its 10th year, the 2019 HCEG Top 10 list identifies the challenges, issues, and opportunities facing healthcare executives and healthcare industry leaders. You can learn more about the 2019 HCEG Top 10 and hear what industry media and healthcare thought leaders have to say about specific items on the HCEG Top 10 list here.
The Industry Pulse Research Survey – Launched During NHITWeek
In addition to guiding HCEG’s overall thought-leadership, content development, and knowledge exchange initiatives throughout the year, the 2019 HCEG Top 10 list serve as the basis for The Industry Pulse, a research survey co-sponsored by HCEG and our sponsor partner Change Healthcare. You can learn more about The Industry Pulse here including results of the 2018 Industry Pulse.
As part of NHITWeek, HCEG and sponsor partner Change Healthcare are pleased to announce the opening of the 2019 Industry Pulse Research Survey. We urge all healthcare executives, thought leaders and others involved in transforming health and healthcare in care in the United States to complete this survey. Responses are strictly confidential and used for research purposes only. We don’t share information with third parties and individuals completing the survey receive a copy of the results if desired.
Executive Leadership Roundtables
Convening healthcare executives and thought leaders for meaningful discussion and interaction is a key part of HCEG’s mission. Our roundtables support opportunity for intimate discussion and sharing of insight and ideas. Scheduling these roundtables in conjunction with major healthcare industry events maximizes attendee value and minimizes overhead.
So far in 2018, we’ve hosted the following roundtables with another event scheduled for this coming December:
- 2018 HLTH.CO Future of Healthcare Forum – May 9, 2018 – Las Vegas, NV
- 2018 Blue Zones of Happiness – September 14, 2018 – Minneapolis, MN
Next Executive Roundtable at AHIP Consumer Experience & Digital Health Forum
Our next roundtable event is planned for Thursday, December 13th, 2018 at 1:30 pm CT – the final day of the 2018 AHIP Consumer Experience & Digital Forum in Nashville, TN. In keeping with AHIP’s customer experience and digital health theme, HCEG will convene a panel of thought leaders in an open discussion on two of our 2019 HCEG Top 10 issues:
- #2 – Total Consumer Health
- #5 – The Digital Healthcare Organization
This ELR builds upon insight shared during the forum with discussion centered on the integration of consumer health and digital healthcare organizations. We’ll focus on the commonalities and differences of these two closely ranked items. And participants will all have an opportunity to interact with panelists.
This ELR is open to all AHIP attendees free of charge and lunch is served. Registration for the event will open next week and subscribers to our eNewsletter will be kept informed.
